This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It is quite small and was full when we arrived. We were ignored for a good 7 minutes before being greeted (luckily for them we were too tired to go elsewhere). Once seated the service was efficient but surly. The food was excellent and the portions were a reasonable size. Prices were equivalent... More

David, surly service is certainly not what we're known for. I'm so sorry if my staff was rude to you; I'll make a point of checking in about your feedback. Typically our guests are welcomed with open arms and treated like friends. I hope you'll keep us in mind whenever you're in Boston--we'd love another chance to show you what... More

Meal was good and spicy. Service is inexperienced, borderline bad and not welcoming. However, after visiting the restroom, I would never go back. It's greasy and dirty; you have more clean toilet at a gas station! I had a quick peak at the kitchen and didn't seem to be better. I will not go back. Kashmir was a better experience... More

expatsonthego, cleanliness is a crucial part of what we do, not only in our kitchen and dining room but also in our restrooms. We regularly inspect the facilities and tidy up when necessary. If the restroom was not at its best during your visit, I want to apologize, but I assure you it did not remain that way for long.... More

We went for dinner at the India Quality Restaurant in Boston. We ordered 2 papadoms and pickles (which in the final bill appear as complimentary). You would normally expect freshly chopped onions, lime pickle, tandoori sauce, and ginger however, the "pickles" were already on the table in 3 containers, and were tired, quite depleted so not sure how long they...

mw741002, we never want to disappoint our guests, so please let me apologize if we let you down. It's important for me to note however that we do not microwave dishes in our kitchen. We do prepare fresh dishes to order and have been earning raves for our style of Indian cuisine for over 30 years. I'm sorry if it... More

We felt un-welcome at this place. Even though the food was good, poor service made me give 3 stars to this review. Their portions are smaller compared to other Indian restaurants but the prices are adjusted accordingly so no complaints there.

Manan312, while I'm happy that our cooking hit the spot for you, I'm surprised to hear our service fell short of the mark. We love welcoming guests, be they our neighbors or visitors from out of town, and I want to apologize if we made you feel unwelcome. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We were in Boston for two nights and ate at India Quality for one of our dinners. The restaurant was smelled wonderful and the service was great. We're from Tucson, Arizona, so I guess our spice levels are different than east coast expectations, so we would have like a bit more heat, but other than that, the food was delicious.... More

This is the best Indian Resturant I've been to. It is a small place at Kenmoe Square but the staff and every thing is good. The interiors are amazing. I had paneer, daal and naan and was the best indian I've had since a long time. Also don't miss on the lassi.

We have been going to India Quality for over 15 years, and are thrilled at the quality every time (and I have eaten Indian food all over the US, Europe and in India).

India Quality had the merit of having tables available on a night when the Red Sox were playing at Fenway Park nearby. We were happy to find it. The food was very good indeed. We chose a vegetarian dinner for two. There was far more food than we could eat. It included papadum, soup (coconut or lentil), naan, dal, an... More

We had lunch here and it was amazingly good food. The entrees were all made well. But watch out they give you a lot of rice with it. The Naan was soft and hot which made us very happy customers.
